Quintessentially British brand Beautiful Soul debuts at London Fashion Week with ‘I ♥ Ladybirds’
Unfortunately circumstances conspired against me this week and I never made it to London Fashion Week. One reason that I really wanted to get there was to catch up with Nicola Woods of Beautiful Soul. I have been a big fan of Nicola’s British-made collection ever since I interviewed her back in 2011, and was particularly looking forward to seeing her show at London Fashion Week for the first time.
Luckily I managed to get hold of some images of the new Beautiful Soul collection and now I can see what all the fuss has been about on Twitter. The signature print, reminiscent of an English country garden, is a stunning all-over display of hydrangeas, dotted with tiny ladybirds, . All too often I think that the word quintessentially is banded about in conjunction with the word British when in fact the product is anything but, however I think in this case it is very appropriate.
Judge for yourself with this sneak preview of some of the pieces from the Beautiful Soul Autumn Winter 2013 collection.
